The Commission on Modernizing Federalism received several letters and statements from associations and individuals. They dealt with the principle of federalism in general but also with specific topics of the reform agenda, in particular the legislative competences on national and state levels. It is remarkable how conflictual these demands were: several letters argued in favour of a general strengthening of the Länder and local governments whereas others strongly preferred the centralisation of specific legislative competences. In general, it can be stated that associations tend to prefer the status quo, whereas far-reaching reform proposals are regarded with scepticism.
